Matt Reed was living the dream until a bad career move sends him back to his hometown for much-needed privacy. Instead, he finds someone he never expected: the woman whose steamy kiss he remembers like it was yesterday.

Vivienne Forrester finally has her life in order... until Matt moves back to town. She doesn't want to think about the time she threw caution to the wind with him, but running into him everywhere, it's impossible not to...

One More Kiss by Samantha Chase (Band on the Run, #1) 

One More Kiss (Band on the Run #1)Matt learned in a very public way that pride goes before the fall. The public fallout was brutal and his own insecurities sent him running home to hideout until as they say, “the next big disaster” hits the news. Not only did he get his privacy, but he found the woman whose kiss became his fantasy of perfection, but he wasn’t prepared to discover she wasn’t a figment of his drunken stupor. She was real, she was beautiful and she had been there almost his entire life. How did he not see it?

Vivienne is following her passion, becoming successful and wasn’t expecting her brother’s best friend to come home and turn her life and her heart upside down again. All her life she was the little sister, the one with the secret crush on Matt, the one who shared an amazing kiss she never forgot, but it seemed that he had.

Together they shared things friends share, including Matt’s horrendous past, the one that left him the bitter and insecure man who had to prove to himself that he had worth. But when Matt’s worst nightmare stood right in front of him, only Matt could face his demons, would they send him running once again just when he and Vivienne had found something worth hanging on to?

Samantha Chase’s ONE MORE KISS is NOT an insta-love romance, it is the discovery of true friendship, trust, happiness and the inner peace that leads to love. Matt truly is a mess, and just perhaps a little too self-absorbed until Vivienne’s strength and love for life with all of its pitfalls opens his eyes and his heart! Filled with sweet and innocent moments, fun banter and the heated passion that only love can bring, one again, Samantha Chase carves out a romance as endearing as young lovers carving their initials in a tree seeing nothing but hope for the future.
